This dissertation presents a proposal for an alternative methodology to solve optimal maintenance problems by aiming to achieve the same end-goals as Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). RCM was first introduced to the aircraft industry in an attempt to bridge the gap between the empirically-driven and theory-driven approaches to establishing optimal maintenance policies. Under RCM, qualitative processes that enable the prioritizing of functions based on the criticality and influence would be combined with mathematical modeling to obtain the optimal maintenance policies.Nevertheless, the automation of FADEC system induced failure as in Boeing 777 accident in 2008 [1, 64]. Some researchers studied FADEC system with different types of maintenance to compare the reliability with respect to operational timeanbsp;...
